Hi all,

How do i stop a hyperlink from changing colour once it has been clicked on. I'm designing the website in FP 2003 and don't want the link to change to blue/purple.

You need to use CSS for that

Put this code at the top of your page before </head> tag.

A:link {text-decoration: none; color: #ffffff}
A:visited {text-decoration: none; color: #ffffff}
A:hover { text-decoration: none; color: #ff0000 }

This will give a color when the mouse if over the link.  When you click and go back the link color will not change.  here I used white for Link,  white for visited and red for hover.  You can change them by changing the value after the colon (:)

Or you can do it in Frontpage.

- Open the page in frontpage
- Right click any where in the page
- Select page properties
- Select background
- Select Hyperlink color
- Select Visited Hyperlink Color
- Select Active Hyperlink Color

Save the page.

Or in every page change the <body> tag into <body link="#0000FF" vlink="#0000FF" alink="#0000FF">

You can change the colors between the quotations as you like.
